Many apologies for the lack of up-dates over the last couple of weeks. This is because I (Ivan) have been away on hols for a couple of weeks. I was on holiday in the far north of Scotland and wifi was virtually non-existant. Anyway, we are back and in good shape. The first thing I did was to get together with our In-house team for a spot of lunch and here we are!
One of our favourite locations is the restaurant "Era Las Mozas" in Valle San Lorenzo. A fabulous place if you are a bit of a carnivore. Also it's a complete coincidence that Tony and I are wearing almost identical shirts, it's not a new Club Olympus uniform!
Ray of course did his usual and devoured a great chunk of meat!
It's a great diet that he's on!
We then retired back to the Olympus Poolside bar and joined the on-going party there.
Here is Dawn with her daughter Holly and here below is Tony with Jen from the Poolside bar who recently left for University back in Scotland.
So we are all back in full swing and looking forward to seeing you.
Just a quick comment on recent UK media coverage of forest fires in Tenerife. When I was in the UK a definite impression was given that the forest fires were a big danger, this was simply not true. A few small fires up in the forests of Tenerife were dealt with by fire teams but at no time were they near any holiday resort areas.
Big fires were reported on the neighbouring Island of La Gomera and they have lost significant amounts of Laurel forest which is tragic. Some properties were also lost particularly in the Valle Gran Rey region.
Forest fires are an almost annual event here in Tenerife particularly during long hot summers. They are also a natural way for forests to clean themselves up. The bigger trees survive the fires and subsequently many pests and bugs are eliminated as well as clearing the forest floor of inches deep pine needles. So please don't be put off by over-zealous reporting from the media.
